Fortnite Twitch Drops – Claim Zero Fragment Back Bling For Free

In order to claim these items for free, you first need to connect your Twitch account with your Epic Games Fortnite accounts together, or you will not be able to use the cosmetics on your account.

Once you have done that, all you need to do is to watch a streamer who has the drops enabled. These streamers will have in the title something along the lines of ‘Drops Enabled’ or ‘Drops On’, but you can click here for a list of streamers currently playing Fortnite.

Once you have clicked on a stream that has the drops enabled, you should see a Twitch Drops notification where the comments are so you know that watching the stream will make you eligible for the rewards. You can dismiss the message or view details to read more about it.

How to Slide Kick in Fortnite

Here is how to slide kick in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Epic Games have done a great job of keeping Fortnite feeling fresh by adding new mechanics to the game. At the start of chapter 3, players were able to perform ‘parkour’ style manoeuvres such as having the ability to sprint and jump onto objects as well as holding onto ledges and hoisting yourself up.

There is a stamina bar, which will need some time to replenish in between sprinting, but there isn’t much time to wait. Whilst sprinting, you also have the option to slide, which can easily be done by pushing the crouch button whilst sprinting and this helps you to move around the map quicker and helps you to get a different angle on enemies. A new feature has been added to Fortnite in Chapter 3, Season 4 which allows you to slide kick, and here is how it works.

How to Slide Kick in Fortnite

Slide kicking has been added in the Fortnite update today and it’s very easy to perform. All you have to do is firstly make sure you have enough stamina to sprint, which you can see by looking at the stamina bar in the bottom left corner of your screen.

You also want to make sure you have enough distance between you and the enemy or object you want to deal damage to as you need momentum in order to carry the kick out.

What you need to do is start sprinting towards the enemy or object you want to deal damage to and simply slide a little distance away from it. You will continue sliding into the object, which will perform the slide kick and deal some damage.

There is no animation for the slide kick itself, but there is damage that will be done to the object you crash into. You can also do this new feature on a boulder to dislodge it, which is part of one of the challenges for this week.

Fortnite: How and Where to Knock Down a Timber Pine and Dislodge a Runaway Boulder in a Single Match

Here is how and where to complete the Fortnite challenge to knock down a Timber Pine and dislodge a Runaway Boulder in a single match.

A new season has launched in Fortnite Battle Royale and of course, new challenges have now been made available for players to complete. There are different types of challenges you can complete, which are the Kickstart, Daily, Weekly and Milestones challenges, with the Paradise challenges set to release in a couple of days.

Completing these challenges is a quick and easy way to level up as you will earn 20,000XP upon completion. Some of these challenges are self-explanatory and easy to complete whereas others you may be need help on. This article will show you how and where to complete the Fortnite week 1 challenge, “knock down a Timber Pine and dislodge a Runaway Boulder in a single match”.

Fortnite – How and where to knock down a Timber Pine and dislodge a Runaway Boulder in a single match

In order to complete this challenge, you will need to know the location of a runaway boulder and timber pine. The best place to go to complete this challenge is northwest of Reality Tree and southwest of Rave Cave. We have marked the location of the boulder and timber pine in the image below.

Fortnite Map Location - Knock Down a Runaway Boulder and Timber Pine
Fortnite Map Location – Knock Down Timber Pine and Dislodge a Runaway Boulder

For most challenges, you would need to interact with the item by clicking on a button, but with this challenge, you need to hit the item itself to complete the challenge.

You can either go to the boulder first or the timber pine but you do need to go to both in one match in order to complete the challenge. Here is what the boulder will look like in-game:

All you need to do it hit it a few times in order to dislodge it, and then you will have completed part of the challenge and will be notified of such on the left side of the screen.

Then travel to the timber pine, marked on the map above, to complete the second and final part of the challenge. Here is what the timber pine looks like in-game:

Again, all you need to do is to hit the tree a few times, which will make the top part of the tree fall down and you will have completed the challenge. Completing this challenge awards you with 20,000XP.

For both the boulder and the timber pine, you can hit them in order to cause more damage to any object in their path!

Secretlab x Fortnite TITAN Evo 2022 Battle Bus Edition Chair Review

Here is what the Secretlab x Fortnite Battle Bus Titan Evo 2022 gaming chair looks like and a review of what the chair includes.

Pros Cons
+ Easy to assemble – Magnetic head pillow can get knocked
+ Inbuilt lumbar support
+ Comfortable
+ 4D Arm Rests
+ Design

Secretlab have managed to establish themselves as one of the best companies to go to for quality gaming chairs. Secretlab have committed $20m into research and development for their chairs, which allows them to incorporate the latest technologies and features into new releases.

Secretlab 2022 Series
Secretlab 2022 Series

They launched the TITAN Evo 2022 series in July 2022 and have stated that it is their “most technologically advanced chair to date” with many improvements being made including an overhauled lumbar support system, proprietary pebble seat base, upgraded upholsteries and more. The Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 now comes in three different sizes, small, regular and XL so you can choose the best size for you.

Secretlab x Fortnite TITAN Evo 2022 Battle Bus Edition Gaming Chair

Epic Games have partnered with many different companies in order to bring exclusive content to the game as well as merchandise for fans and have now added Secretlab to the list! Secretlab have just announced the new TITAN Evo 2022 Battle Bus Edition and we have been sent a chair to review.

The assembly of the chair was very easy and took around 20 minutes in total. There are clear instructions given to you in the box and also a video tutorial if you prefer watching them instead to help you. Here is what the the Secretlab x Fortnite Battle Bus gaming chair looks like:

Fortnite x Secretlab Battle Bus Chair
Fortnite x Secretlab Battle Bus Chair

The chair itself is a dark purple colour, which is supposed to resemble the Storm in Fortnite and it is upholstered in the Secretlab NEO™ Hybrid Leatherette material. On the front of the chair, you will see the embroidery of ‘FORTNITE’ in blue with ‘VICTORY ROYALE’ on the top right of the chair, which has also been embroidered on. There is also a pattern to imitate the Storm in Fortnite on the inner left and right sides of the chair which run from the top of the chair on the backrest down to the seat. On the of the back of the backrest, there is an embroidered design of the iconic Battle Bus.

You will also receive the Secretlab magnetic memory foam head pillow, which can be attached from anywhere near the top of the chair till just above the ‘FORTNITE’ embroidery. ‘FORTNITE’ is also embossed on the top of the backrest, which is a nice addition to the chair.

There are also Fortnite themed memory foam lumbar pillows that you can purchase in addition to the chair and there are three different designs you can purchase which are:

  • Cuddle Team Leader
  • Peely
  • Llama
Secretlab x Fortnite Lumbar Pillow Collection
Secretlab x Fortnite Lumbar Pillow Collection

Keep in mind, these chairs do have an inbuilt lumbar support system where you can adjust the curve of the support with the dials on the side, one of which adjusts the lumbar curvature and the other which adjusts the height, so you can tailor it to your needs.

With every purchase, there is also a code for an exclusive wrap, called the Chipset wrap, which you can redeem in-game. There is only one available with each purchase, so make sure you apply it to the correct account if you have more than one.

Overall the changes made to the chair, especially the inbuilt lumbar system, makes it a very comfortable chair to game in and makes it unique from competitors as you are able to modify the support to your needs. The only con for the chair is the magnetic head pillow sometimes being nudged so you may need to adjust the positioning to get it to the right place.
